BP Caught Lying With Pictures Too

Editorial

Seems British Petroleum just can’t get a break. A photo they published on their ‘Response In Pictures‘ page depicts several silhouetted individuals hard at work at their Houston, TX HIVE command center.  Only some of those individuals and the screens they’re looking at somehow defy the physics of light and perspective.

The enormity of lies BP is responsible for is disgusting. All in the name of profits.

The Price Is Right Gameshow Set

Arguably, the success of The Price Is Right through the years can be tied to its lack of change. It’s recipe includes the same games, product placements, and strategy. This bedrock of success may also be the reason why Terry Kneiss, a former TV Weatherman, managed to correctly submit his Showcase Showdown bid – down to the exact dollar.

ESPN Radio is reporting this morning that LeBron James will in all likelihood join the Miami Heat creating a superstar ensemble of the Cavs’ Lebron, Raptors’ Chris Bosh, and the Heat’s own Dwyane Wade.

I’m already looking at this year’s schedule so Alice, Chance and I can travel down and watch these three in action! Dad has 4 tix in the 13th row right behind the visitors bench aligned with the foul line.

It will be nice to see Riley walking the sidelines again. This is so awesome for Miami sports! If this pans out, how many championships will the Miami Heat win?

Go Heat!

Indian-Rupee-SymbolOne of the five symbols to the right will soon be the official symbol denoting the Rupee, India’s currency. Many other currencies have their own symbols – yet only a few gain international recognition like the Euro, Dollar, Yen and Pound. Currently, the Rupee is generally designated with an Rs (rupees) combination.

RIP Manute Bol

Editorial, Sport /

23 June 2010

 

manute-bolManute Bol held a special place in my heart. He was almost a tragic figure – seen as a joke amongst many basketball fans – a 7’7″ freak of nature. This Dinka tribesman made the impossible journey from war-torn southern Sudan to somehow play basketball in the NBA. What I admired most about Manute however was how he gave back. Like his fellow African counterpart, Dikembe Mutumbo, Manute Bol worked tirelessly to help foment change back home often to the detriment of his own financial security.

RIP Manute – you entertained me and reminded me of how lucky those of us in the U.S. are when compared to the hardships endured by those throughout much of the world.
